Congratulations! You are now in law school. But now what? As a first year law student, you may find yourself needing some help. This guide is intended to introduce you to the many ways that the Library can assist you to do more than just survive your first year in law school. We can help you succeed!
Your UC ID (Bearcat Card) will allow you access to the building and the Law Library 24/7. If you forget your UC ID during regular business hours (weekdays, 8:00am -- 5:00pm) enter through the front doors. Please visit uc.edu/publichealth for COVID-19 and Return to Campus updates. For updates on other UC Libraries, please visit the UC Library Services Update page.
To enter the Library when it is closed, swipe your ID card through the key-card reader mounted outside the library entrance located across from classroom 302. Exit after-hours through that same door.
Visitors have access to the College of Law Building and the Law Library through the front Clifton street entrance. Those doors are unlocked Monday - Friday 8:00am - 5:00pm.
Although law faculty and students have 24/7 access to the Library, circulation and reference are only available during certain hours. Hours vary during holidays. You can check Library hours at 556-0163 or at https://law.uc.edu/education/library.html. Circulation hours will begin August 23. If you need circulation assistance, please contact the Collections & Access Librarian, Lisa Wernke
Take advantage of Reference Librarian expertise! Schedule an appointment or ask a research question and we'll be happy to help with suggestions for sources and tips. Also, don't forget the Library's Web page and many research guides.
To report unauthorized persons in the Law Library after hours, or to report any personal or facility-related emergency, please call UC Public Safety at 556-1111. Report any problem that you experience with the key-card access function of your I.D. card to Victoria Hayes, Financial Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
